4:30 AM.....my time




GOT THE CALL! Awakened at 4:32 am this morning by a ringing noise in my ear.

Oh my oh my....how sweet to hear that Marine voice.

Justin sounds extremely good and strong. Very positive and upbeat. He is well. He asked for us to *keep up the prayers... *for me to send boxes to 3 other guys, and *for some specific items he wants to give some Afghan National Army guys!

We got almost 20 minutes of talk and it was a land line, (not the Satellite phone), so a VERY good connection. Oh Bliss!


He hopes that he can call again in 2-4 weeks. We will be waiting.


Prayer of the Day????

Lord, Continued protection and success, and please!,... let us get some of those 20 letters he has written!!!!!!!!!!! (where oh where are they?)

Order of the Day????

Oh I can just feel the joy and I know what that phone call does for a mom's heart. When my second daughter spent some time in Africa I had a hard time waiting for phone calls which were very limited. I finally got through to where she was staying and she was out for pizza, pizza of all things in Africa!!!

This mom is thrilled for you and saying a prayer right now for you and your marine!

Hallelujah!!! The call came!! So happy that
your son is doing well. I will continue to
keep Justin in my prayers for his divine
protection, strength, health, and that he
will feel God's presence filling and
refilling him daily.
Love,

Oh Julie, you know I had a backyard full of family today but Cindy said Julie got a phone call and we all OOH RAHed for you! I am so happy that you got to hear his voice, I know that your faith is strong but you just need to hear that he is OK. Sounds like you will be on cloud nine for a while now. It is fuel for us to keep going when we just hear from those Marines! Love and prayer to all of you up there!
